Pokémon GO: Halloween Celebration 2017

Pokémon GO held a Halloween event that began on October 20, 2017, and ended on November 2, 2017.  I tend to enjoy Halloween events in video games, and this one was fun.

Like last year’s Halloween event, there were some Pokémon available that had not been in the game before.  This year’s also includes some that had previously been introduced to the game, and that were more prevalent now for Halloween.

Hearthstone: Card Backs

There was a time when I regularly put effort into earning a card back in Hearthstone. When I started trying to collect card backs, I was having fun with the experience.

Eventually, things stopped being fun.  The game got frustrating and I lost interest in trying to earn card backs.

The best thing about the card backs is the awesome artwork.  This blog features all of the card backs that I have earned.

Hearthstone: On My iPad

I have an iPad mini that I use to play video games.  It didn’t occur to me until March 30, 2017, that I could put Hearthstone on my iPad mini.  Previous to this realization, all of my Hearthstone experience happened on my Mac computer.

I learned that the Hearthstone app syncs with the Hearthstone game that I play on my computer. The best part of playing on an iPad is the way it feels.  I mean, Hearthstone is a card game, so it makes sense to use your fingers to move cards around and fling cards on the virtual table.

Neko Atsume: Mr. Meowgi

Mr. Meowgi is a Rare Cat in Neko Atsume.  The way to attract a Rare Cat to put the things that the Rare Cat likes into your yard/home.  Eventually, the cat you are trying to collect will appear. Several other cats will also use the special item.

Mr. Meowgi likes two items: the Sakura Pillow and the Scratching Log.  It took a very long time before Mr. Meowgi sat on the Sakura Pillow, but he used the Scratching log almost right away.

Candy Crush Saga: Dreamworld – Funky Factory

In order to unlock Dreamworld, a player must complete Episode 4 – Chocolate Mountains in Candy Crush Saga.  It seems to me that Dreamworld is some sort of expansion.

Players do not have to play through the Dreamworld content in order to progress through Candy Crush Saga.  That’s a good thing – because the Dreamworld section of Candy Crush Saga silently disappeared shortly before I put together this blog post.

Hearthstone: Fight Promoter Card

On May 20, 2017, Hearthstone offered a free card to everyone who logged into the game.  All players had to do was log in.  There was no catch.  Players didn’t have to do anything at all – other than log in on the right day.  If you have found this blog after that date – you are too late to get the free Fight Promoter Card.

I find it somewhat amusing that some commenters on the Hearthstone post about the free card felt the need to create a conspiracy theory about it. In short, some believe that this free card was a test to see if giving away free stuff was enough of an incentive to make players log into Hearthstone. As conspiracy theories go… this one seems harmless.

Pokémon GO: Adventure Week

Pokémon GO announced Adventure Week – a celebration that started on May 18, 2017, and will end on May 25, 2017.  The big thing about this event is that players will see more Rock Pokémon than usual.  The announcement specifically named Omanyte, Kabuto, (and their evolutions) and Aerodactyl.

Players could obtain a free Expedition Hat from the wardrobe while Adventure Week was taking place.  In addition, Buddy Pokémon will find Candy four times as fast, and PokéStops will provide more items.

Neko Atsume: Chairman Meow

Chairman Meow is one of the “Rare Cats” in Neko Atsume.  The only way to get a “Rare Cat” to visit your yard/home in Neko Atsume is to place an item that a specific cat likes.  After that, all you can do is wait and keep filling up the food dishes.  In general, you have to wait a while between when you place a desirable item and when the cat you were hoping to attract appears.

Chairman Meow likes two items.  One is the Earthenware Pot, and the other is the Sunken Fireplace.  The Earthenware Pot can only be used by one cat at a time.  The Sunken Fireplace can hold up to three cats – plus Chairman Meow when he appears.

Candy Crush Saga: Candy Clouds

Episode 20 of Candy Crush Saga is called Candy Clouds. It features a Giant who has fallen from his castle in the Candy Clouds. He hit the ground and was knocked out.

The little girl, Tiffi, asks the Giant what happened. He needs her help to get back to his castle. The only part of the Giant that we can see is his feet and part of his legs. This works for the story line, but seems odd later on when the disembodied feet and legs are added to the game board.

Pokémon GO: Worldwide Bloom

Niantic held a very short Pokémon GO event that was called Worldwide Bloom.  It started on the afternoon of May 5, 2017, and ended on May 8, 2017.   This is the first Pokémon GO event that I have seen that did not connect to a real world holiday.

There wasn’t a whole lot of “extras” connected to the Worldwide Bloom event.  The main thing was that players would see more Grass-type Pokémon around than they typically would.  The event did not involve extra Experience Points (XP) or extra Candy, or anything else.  It was simple and fun.
